One Year Blogging Anniversary!

I didn't really realize that this week celebrates my first year of blogging, until my mom commented the other day on how much progress I've made in my quilting life over the past year.  But yep! It was a year ago today that I transitioned from being a curious blog reader to a creative blog writer! It's so wierd to remember how nervous and unsure I was. You can check out my first post in the linky party below.
Have you gone back and read your first post lately? Pretty fun! Remember those first posts when your only "traffic sources" where spammers and/or wierdos and you were begging your family members to comment just to make sure your comment button worked!!! LOL!I love this virtual quilting guild we are all creating and am curious of what your first post looks like and says about you! Just for fun....feel welcome to share.
With smiles!
Val:)

Congrats on a great year! I was a little nervous about looking back to my first post. I expected to see a mess of a blog with poor pictures and bad writing. Thanks for the fun look back.

Congrats and Happy Anniversary!! Isn't amazing how blogging can help you document and capture details that you may have forgotten or skipped over!

My first post is a little wimpy as I was semi-transitioning from another (more personal) blog into the sewy stuff once I started sewing again upon little Sadie's impending arrival. Now this blog is a happy mix of both, though mostly about sewing I do put in a few little personal touches (and baby pics) now and again.

Happy anniversary to your blog! Thanks for making us participate to this event!

Happy blogiversary, Val! And what a great idea - it is fun to go back and look at those first posts. Mine has absolutely no pictures - THE HORROR! Can't imagine a post now without at least something pretty to look at!

Marie said...

Happy Anniversary -- it becomes and addicting habit ...but fun to share info/pic's and projects with friends and family ....

I enjoyed reading everyone's first post. That's a good idea you had.
Congratulations for your first year!

A Quilter's Mission said...

Wow...what fun! I haven't read my first post since I wrote it. I didn't even know how to download photos for the first few posts! Now that's a rookie. Happy Blogiversary!!!

Marly said...

Congratulations on reaching your first blog anniversary. What hoot reading my first post again. It's only been six months, but it seems like decades since I wrote it. In those days I also wrote in Dutch, but no-one in Holland responded so I soon gave up on that and saved myself the hassle!.

Happy Blogiversary! This was such a fun exercise and I learned that mine is just around the corner, July 11! Say what?! Hugs and cheers to you, Val!

Daryl @ Patchouli Moon Studio said...

Happy one year Val. How fun to revisit our first day of our blogs. I know I've come a long way baby since my first posting over 6 years ago! Here's to many more years of fun blogging ahead.

Happy Anniversary, and what a fun idea! I have not been blogging long either, but I have definitely learned a lot. Thanks for your inspiration!

Dasha said...

Happy Blogaversary Val. Enjoyed re-reading my first ever post. I was so frustrated with it!! Have just put up my 150th post, and clocked over 10,000 page views, so feeling pretty experienced now LOL.

Kathy@KayakQuilting said...

Oh my gosh Val...I can't believe you have only been blogging for one year! You have been so engaged and entertaining I always thought you were an uber-blogger! (Which of course you are!). Congrats and keep smiling! Love the picture too!

Kelly @ My Quilt Infatuation said...

Congrats Val! You know, I totally missed my first blogiversary. It was on May 3rd. After I realized it had passed, I just felt strange calling attention to it after the fact. I'll certainly be linking up my first post!

Thanks so much for linking up to Needle and Thread Thursday!

Congratulations! But it seems as if I have known you forever. I love this linky party!

Jasmine said...

I LOVE the pictures of you with your quilt. Hard to imagine it has only been one year for you. It has been a little over six months for me. :)

Quilt Musings said...

Happy Anniversary!! How fun :) A lot of times when I visit a new blog I will look at their first post. I find it so much fun to see what people were thinking about when they started into the blogging adventure. Here's to many more years of blogging! :)

SarahZ said...

What a fun idea! I will dig mine out and link it up! Happy Blogiversary, too!!! It is a wonderful quilty bloggy world, isn't it?!

Sheila said...

Happy Anniversary! I love your blog. I'm going to enjoy reading the linkups this weekend. My goodness. I didn't realize I had been blogging as long as I have until I looked at the date on my first post.

Janet said...

My blog is almost 4 years old!! My first post totally sucks - it was so tentative. I hope that people will look past that...Thanks for this fun idea.

Tanya Quilts in CO said...

Val, We always comment about how much we have in common and do you realize we started our quilting blogs in the same week last year? Are you sure we are not related in some way? Congratulations! Tanya Quilts in CO
